When I launched my blog last week, Kristin commented “you can never have enough stars!” I realized that I kinda have this whole star motif going on here, but I never really explained the backstory behind it. So here it is!
My mom has a knack for coming up with little poems. Ever since I can remember, we’ve had our poem. She used to say it to me every night before I went to bed. My brothers had their own poems, and sometimes my mom would even make up poems for my friends who were sleeping over. Until I went to college, we pretty much said it every night, even when it meant that I was the one tucking her in.
The first line of the poem is “I love you more than the moon and the stars.” I won’t go into the rest, because that’s the most important part. I mean, what’s bigger than that?
I’ve always had a special thing for celestial themes- the first time I decorated my room in elementary school, there were stars. The star room was always my favorite room in the Pottery Barn Kids catalogue (I know, I was a freak.) The moon and the stars are part of me. And when I went to rebrand and redo my blog, well- it just made sense to go with the stars. But I think it all pretty much goes back to the poem.
